  Comment: Concerning North American records that are referrable to another species, Pelham (2008:434) notes of Plebejus argyrognomon (Bergsträsser, 1779), "Widely misidentified in North America for Plebejus idas (Linnaeus, 1761). Extralimital"  
    Plebejus argyrognomon (Bergsträsser, 1779) is classified within the subgenus Plebejus (Lycaeides) since it is the type for Lycaeides
